If you don’t have canned pumpkin, you can substitute with sweet potato puree. You can also use brown butter instead of melted butter for a nutty flavor.
Store any leftover waffles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply pop them in the toaster or microwave until warm.
- Be careful not to overmix the batter, as this will result in tough waffles.
- Use a ladle to spoon the batter onto the waffle iron for even distribution.
